Pomegranates offer great health benefits

FAIRBANKS - This year I am resolving to increase my use of exotic or unusual foods, and decrease my waistline. The Lady of the House and I have decided (along 93 percent of the rest of the United States) that we’re going to focus on our health this year. Goodbye Nanaimo bars. Hello lettuce. Butter, consider yourself un-friended. My new BFF? Super foods. I am on day 12. Looking to be equally successful with the next 353.

The pomegranate is the inspiration for this month’s article. The pomegranate is a bit unusual, and it falls into the super foods category, which of course fits nicely into my new eating plan. New research has put this fun fruit on the list of heart-healthy foods. With characteristics similar to red wine, this research is hard to repudiate. Not exactly an easy fruit to eat or prepare but one that is well worth the effort. I know someone (a father) who peels the pomegranates and separates the seeds for his daughters when they have them in their lunches (to which the mother replies, “Who has that kind of time?”) Now don’t get me wrong, I love the Lady of the House, but I am afraid she’s going to have to peel her own pomegranate. And peel them well, she does.

This first recipe calls for a “chiffonade” of fresh mint. A chiffonade is just a fancy (French) term meaning “made of rags.” It simply means to cut into long thin strips. Take a handful of mint leaves, roll them up tightly, and with a knife thinly slice the rolled up mint creating thin strips. Fluff them up to top this dish. The recipe also calls for “orange blossom water.” Don’t be scared, just substitute with some orange zest, orange oil or orange extract.

Citrus and Pomegranate

6-8 citrus fruits (a combination of grapefruits, oranges etc.)

1/4 cup chiffonade of fresh mint

1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds

1 tablespoon of local wild flower honey

1/4 tablespoon of orange blossom water

Cut off the end of each piece of fruit. Stand the fruit on the now-flat end and using a flexible knife cut the peel off working your way around the fruit. Slice the fruit width wise about 3/8-inch thick. Artistically arrange the fruit on a platter, thin out the honey with the orange blossom water and drizzle across the fruit. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds across the top of the fruit display, and garnish with the mint. Serve immediately. This is a great brunch dish that serves six.

The following recipe offers a great combination of flavors. Add, change or eliminate items as you please. I like the way the textures and contrasting flavors work together. Serve as a stand-alone tossed salad, or top with chicken or thinly sliced grilled steak.

Seasonal Salad with Pomegranate

1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds

1 small head of butter lettuce

1 small head of romaine, or leaf you choice

3-4 ounces of feta

1/4 cup of rough chopped toasted hazelnuts

1/4 cup of herb-spice oil and vinegar dressing (as needed)

4-6 ounces per person of sliced cooked seasoned chicken, (this is optional, just use whatever meat you have on hand)

Tomatoes, cucumber, onion etc for garnish

Toss everything together, except the chicken/meat, along with your dressing. Serve with the chicken/meat on top. This is an ideal meal for four.

This chicken wing recipe is a great Super Bowl snack. You can cook your wings and the sauce the day before and just toss them together on game day and warm them up in the oven.

Spicy Pomegranate Chicken Wings

3 pound of chicken wings (cut at the joints)

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

2 jalapenos seeded and minced

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 cup of cranberry juice

1 cup of pomegranate juice

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1/3 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of pomegranate seeds

Wash the wings and season them with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees in a single layer on a non-stick sheet pan until they are golden brown. About 45 minutes.

Meanwhile in a medium sauce pan on medium high heat, saut├ę the garlic and jalapeno for about a minute, then add the sugar, vinegar and juices. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, and is reduced to about 2/3 of a cup.

Toss the wings in the sauce and return to the oven for another ten minutes. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve.

I find that you can get a good two cups of seeds out of one pomegranate, or at least the Lady of the House (Mona) can. The chicken wings and pomegranate salad would both pair well with a Gew├╝rztraminer from Columbia Winery.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or comments, I enjoy hearing from you.

Pomegranate juice found beneficial for dialysis patients

Patients on hemodialysis who consumed pomegranate juice for 1 year developed significantly fewer infections compared with those who did not, results from a single-center placebo-controlled study showed. They also had significant reductions in markers of inflammation and protein oxidation, Dr. Batya Kristal reported during a press briefing at the annual meeting of the American Society of Nephrology. "Antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice has been shown to improve the lipid profile in patients with diabetes, reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension, and improve heart function in those with heart disease," said Dr. Kristal, a nephrologist with Western Galilee Hospital, Nahariya, Israel.

She and her associates set out to study the use of pomegranate juice in hemodialysis patients "because they also suffer from oxidative stress, which is caused by excess production of free oxygen radicals in the face of low antioxidants," she said. "Free radicals are involved in the development of chronic diseases such as aging, coronary heart disease, and cancer. The damage of free radicals can be reduced by dietary intake of antioxidants." During dialysis, she continued, the blood flow through the dialyzer enhances free radical release, which adds to the high levels of oxidative stress and inflammation. For the study, 101 dialysis patients were randomized to receive 3.38 ounces of pomegranate juice or placebo three times per week for 1 year. "The pomegranate juice and placebo bottles looked the same," Dr. Kristal said. "Even the taste was similar. Both patients and staff were blinded to its content."

The researchers chose a commercial pomegranate juice manufactured in Turkey and marketed in Israel. She said the product was chosen because it had the highest concentration of polyphenols among 14 pomegranate juices tested. The study’s primary end point was the change from baseline in markers of inflammation and protein oxidation, including neutrophil priming, interleukin-6, albumin, and oxygenized fibrinogen. The main secondary end point was the rate of hospitalization due to infections. After 1 year, patients in the pomegranate group had significant reductions in neutrophil priming (P = .003), oxidized fibrinogen (P = .001), Il-6 (P less than .001), and albumin (P = .005), while those in the placebo group had no significant change in any of the markers.

Dr. Kristal also reported that patients in the pomegranate group had a lower rate of infection-related hospitalization compared with patients in the placebo group (33 vs. 55 per 1,000 patient-months, respectively), a difference that was not statistically significant (P = .11). However, significantly fewer patients in the pomegranate group developed a second infection-related hospitalization compared with their counterparts in the placebo group (3 vs. 18 per 1,000 patient-months, for a P value of .01). Since pomegranate juice contains a high amount of potassium, Dr. Kristal emphasized that its intake by dialysis patients should be monitored by a dietician and a nephrologist, to prevent potassium overload. She also noted that pomegranate juice may interfere with the metabolism of certain drugs. The study was funded by the Chief Scientist Office of the Ministry of Health, Israel; the Jess and Mildred Fisher Family Cardiology Research Fund; and the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, Technion, Israel.
